I need to see that empty plate.SO did my mother. My sibs and I all ended up with overeating issues. I still need to see that empty plate :-(I was relaxed with my kids. DD didn't like meat in the early years, so I tucked extra protein into everything…ground peanut powder into hot cereal, dry milk powder into custard, eggs into soup, cottage cheese if she didn't like the dinner protein. Luckily she loved beans--her favorite snack is still chick peas.Both of my kids, now 30somethings, eat healthy and are normal (DD, nursing) and slender (DS).
